~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My baby sister, Julie turned 26 --- she's twenty six years old!! It sounds insane to me because I remember naming her when I first met her at the hospital. As far my memory is concerned, I remember basically walking in the door, making a comment about her eyes and telling my parents that her name was Julie. As an adult, I imagine my little 4 year old self being very miss-bossy-pants.

The frosting of this vanilla cake is nothing short of amazing. I don't know why I would ever do a cream cheese frosting any other way now. The chocolate icicles may be too much for some. Half of my family couldn't get enough of it and the other half thought it was too intense.

grainy picture is grainy :stare:
Edit: *Nameda is the best! she fixed it for me~ yay :la:

this cake gives such great ideas, my hubby and I are going to try and renew our vows next year and i'm thinking that this would be an interesting concept to work with on our cake.

Oh that's great news!!
Make sure to temper the chocolate if you plan on serving it at room temperature. This one was kept in the fridge because I did not temper it.

how do you get the little squiggly pieces on the side to stand on end like that?

They are white chocolate piped into a cookie sheet (over parchment), then chilled and transferred to stick on the frosting. I cut the bottoms to look cleaner.

and the noise isnt that bad :) want me to remove it for you?

maytel Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013
If you can!? I've tried blurring it in Photoshop but it seems to be doing nothing! How do you remove it?

Nameda Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013  Professional General Artist
there are several programs like denoise and dfine which do a great job :)
but you can work with the blur brush too instead of blurring the whole pic.
Give me 20 mins and I upload it to my scraps again for you

I actually omitted to say that I used a raspberry/mascarpone filling in the center. It turned out to be way too intense for myself (some people in my family loved it though).

yes, that's the bad pic.. I was in a hurry when I took it so the placement is all wrong, the light is crap and the settings on my camera were wrong :(
